This week's episode of HBO's Westworld, "Vanishing Point" does a excellent job of setting up next week's finale. That finale has a lot riding on it, with seemingly endless permutations of possibilities of who's a host, who's a human, what's real and what's simulated that have to be coalesced down to a single possibility. But we're getting ahead of ourselves, because if you watched this episode purely for it's plot mechanics you missed out on a lot of wonderful writing and acting that lead to some amazing character development for most of the main cast, revealing brand new relationships we didn't even know were there, giving more depth to the ones we had, and utterly shattering a few more. And yeah, there are just a ton of theories involving who is a host and what will happen in the Valley Beyond next episode! Can't wait to discuss it all with you then!
